The ILO is participating in AIDS2014, which is expected to gather over 10,000 delegates (including policy makers, programme implementers, practitioners, activists, scientists, journalists, people living with HIV) from nearly 200 countries on the theme: Stepping up the pace. The ILO and its partners will highlight the contribution of the world of work to the AIDS response through various events and activities held from 20 to 24 July in Melbourne, Australia.
The new labour standard is the first human rights instrument to focus on HIV and AIDS in the world of work, and was adopted - by an overwhelming majority - by governments, employers’ and workers’ representatives from ILO member States at the International Labour Conference in June 2010.
